Libya's Gaddafi calls for dialogue and negotiation for power-sharing in Africa, instead of the use of arms
Today, AngolaPress reported Gaddafi slams warmongers in Africa as "neo-colonialist agents" -
Africans who wage wars and exploit their people are "neo-colonialist agents," that will one day be "confronted by the commitment" of a United States of African people, Libyan leader Moammar Kadhafi warned here Saturday.
Speaking at celebrations marking the 7th anniversary of the African Union (AU) proclamation, he described leaders of armed groups on the continent as "botchers," who "spread terror and disorder" in African regions such as in Darfur, western Sudan, Chad, Cte d'Ivoire, DR Congo and the Horn of Africa.
He said the sole objective of the "neo-colonialist agents" was to see Africa mired in conflicts, so they could continue to buy weapons, instead of working for the reconstruction and development of the continent.
"We cannot solve the problem of Africa's backwardness by using rifles," Kadhafi warned, noting however, that a lot had been done in Africa in spite of the existence of marginal groups and persistent underdevelopment.
He called for dialogue and negotiation for power-sharing in Africa, instead of the use of arms.
